>> hi. ok, thank you for joining us today. my name is malia cohen. i represent the southeastern neighborhood, affectionately known as district 10. i am very pleased everyone is here today. thank you for hosting us today and opening up your wonderful sanctuary. where are you? there you are. thank you very much. i appreciate that. i'd like to introduce mayor lee, who will talk to us about some of the proposals we will be presenting to you today to address some of the public safety challenges we have recently been experiencing in the southeastern part of the city. thank you very much, mayor.
8:51am
mayor lee: thank you. i want to also express my appreciation for the other supervisors that are here and also have been engaged with us. certainly, supervisor olague is here. supervisor wiener is here. there is an ongoing discussion about public safety. i also want to express my deep appreciation for our city's cloete community, the interfaith council, and my thanks for today, the pastor and his church and his staff for welcoming us all here in this very integral part of our city and all the other clergy that are here as well as the naacp, represented
8:52am
by a pastor reverend amos brown and his staff, along with the police chief, or public safety clusters, juvenile probation, a deprivation, community-based agencies, city services office, and the number of community groups that have engaged me and my staff and all of the supervisors are on this very serious question around public safety in our city. many of you have known and heard in the past couple of months my very deep concerns about our safety, particularly of our young kids, and particularly of our african- american kids. not everybody can be a gabby or an olympic hero. not everybody can do that. not everybody can participate in
8:53am
the 5000 jobs that we are creating in the internship programs that are paid that we signaled this summer. not everybody can be successful in everything that we do to try to set up those conditions for people to be successful. there are some who, unfortunately, touch our juvenile and adult probation criminal-justice system, and we try to find ways to correct that path and to create supportive mechanisms. we are rich in services in many ways with interventions as much as we can to redirect our youth or to help victims and their families as best we can. sometimes not perfectly, but the best we can to assist them in their recovery. and so it was right for me to
8:54am
talk about this in a very deliberate way, to talk to other mayors across the country and ask what they are doing to find out what is working and what is not working and then to bring back that conversation in a very direct way to our own communities here in san francisco. i know every person standing beside and behind the law of our communities, love this city. they would not be here unless they did, from the labor groups to become -- clergy groups to the community-based agencies, they really have a deep, deep love. i know it, and i know we have had these very sensitive discussions about these programs will have been done in other parts of the country, and i had a chance to review those. in agreement with our local leaders, in total agreement with the community-based agencies and civil rights organizations that have had a very delivered reason to engage me on this, we will
8:55am
not be implementing the stop and frisk programs or variations of that here in san francisco. [applause] we do not wish to be distracted from the real reason we are here. we love our kids. we love our families in the bayview whether they are in sunnyvale or alice griffith or potrero hill or in the mission. we love them so much that we have to do more to care for them. we have to find those connections. [applause] there are too many stories that we are hearing from our clergy when it is too late. when we are having those individual funerals, when our parents and their brothers and sisters are crying over things that have already happened, where the jobs that we are
8:56am
creating did not reach these unfortunate young kids or our police commissioners and police chief working in concert with adult probation, juvenile probation, did not quite get the person who signed these papers, put their names to it saying, "i will not go back to where our was found with a gun or associate with those very known individuals that are participating in gang mentalities." de sign those papers. yet, within days, they are found. we are not reaching them. we are not penetrating those kids. we have to step it up. this is why our supervisors and i have been talking very deliberately to come together with all our community groups to support our own san francisco plan about trying to get to these individuals and prevent crime from happening and prevent
8:57am
their lives from being destroyed. we created over 5000 jobs this summer. we cannot give jobs to dead kids. that is just the reality of it. no matter how often we try, these kids, if we do not get to the now, did not prevent their truancy in middle school, if we do not redirect their interest in how to resolve a problem that they have in an individual case or some hatred or something going on in their lives -- this is why we are investing in a three-pronged approach today that we wanted to announce. a san francisco-based program. the first -- we are going to interrupt the patterns that we see out there. and i need everybody's help to interrupt these lives that are being wasted. right now, what ever we are doing is not good enough to interrupt these patterns. i am going to ask the churches
8:58am
to step it up. i am going to ask all the law- enforcement to step it up. we have identified at least 100 to about 180 adults and young kids who have in most cases touched the criminal-justice system already, and we have to interrupt their lives right now. make sure the interruption is serious enough for them to pay attention, and then we have to do the two other parts of this program that are as essential. interruption is only temporary. we talked about that. we talked about how temporary that can be. not good enough to just incarcerated for a day or two in a juvenile detention or cause them to have a probation. that is not enough interruption. we have to step it up. we have asked the police commission and police chief to work with adult and juvenile probation, to do better
8:59am
predictor of policing in our communities, to work with all of us in the community to take a look at all the data we have, including anecdotal data, information that is given to us by people who are talking through their clergy or their friends or juvenile probation officers and others, not to squeal, but to get better information so we can predict where the crimes will be connected, again, in a very specific way. and we know some of those areas already. they happen over and over again, but predicted policing is about using the best data and the best systems we have, not only to respond with officers on the street, as sensitive as they can be, but we also have to predictably before the events happened saturate those areas with our probation officers, with our crime
